Bee Week
Roncalli Newman Parish is sponsoring Earth Buzz, a family oriented event, on Sunday, April 23, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Myrick Park Center in Myrick Park. Earth Buzz activities include making bee houses for solitary nesting bee species and other children’s activities like face painting, crafts, seed planting, story time and songs. There will be a marsh nature walk for those who are interested. This is to celebrate Earth Day and honor our religious commitment to protecting the earth and its creatures. This event is part of Bee Week, a week of events dedicated to helping save the pollinating insects of the area by assisting the La Crosse Park Department to create a pollinator prairie on a La Crosse bluff. There is no charge, though there will be an opportunity to contribute toward the pollinator prairie creation. Look for more information on this event by checking the Park Department website closer to the date.
